's the latest mickey mouse gimmick to win elections without having to win the most number of votes. remember the tricks they tried in 2012? all those changes in the voting times, all those cuts in the number of voting booths, all that effort to make it harder for people to vote? all that targeting of the people who tend to vote in ways the remembers don't like people voting? remember all that? well, now they're trying something new. they don't like that states like pennsylvania regularly vote democratic. so some political quacks came up with the idea of breaking up the state's electoral votes so the rural areas will get more power. they don't like the urban vote, as they call it, going to democratic. so they decided to kill its power over how the state goes overall. look, the real fight here is by the republicans against the country's shifting demographics. if they don't get or can't get people to vote for them they try to kill the power of those who don't. will they get away with it? not if you stay tuned and keep an eye on these little buggers. they've got their mickey mouse ears on, they'

's nominations today a perfect example of how elections have consequences? >> well, sitting where i'm sitting, not in the clint eastwood chair, i would say yes, it certainly does. it's a case of continuing a very tough policy of enforcement at the sec. so the president is sending a signal that at least in this area of regulation enforcement, he's not going to be backing down at all. surely, that's exactly what wall street and corporate america expected when he won that election. >> and that was the way he campaigned. in many ways, we're looking at, joan, him continuing the path that he campaign ds oed on, gots on and won. look at the poll on rights for gay people, 60%. on aid to the poor, 59%, on tax levels for millionaires and big corporation, 59%. women's issue, 55%. immigration, 55%. i mean, these are high numbers of people feeling the gop is out of touch on these issues. >> yeah, i mean, reverend al, the shocking thing is, as you just laid out, the support for democratic policies is even h h higher than support for democratic politicians. the president won a decisive victory, but the sup
with that. right after the election this year, after insisting publicly over and over again that there was no need to strip union rights in the state of michigan, michigan republicans, surprise, passed a bill doing just that, and governor rick snyder signed it. the whole thing was opened, passed, and shut within a week, never mind what we said before, we're doing it. surprise. michigan is amazing, right? i mean michigan is the state with the republican law to let the state fire all your locally elected officials and unilaterally abolish your town if they want to on their own say so, no matter how you vote. in november this past election, michigan voters repealed that with a direct vote, the will of the people. the month after that, governor snyder and the republicans in the legislature gave the voters of michigan a big michigan republican one-finger salute. they decided to pass and sign into law a new emergency manager law to replace the one that the voters just killed. except this new one can't be killed by the voters. what's that you say? the will of the who now? i'm sorry
not expect to witness an election won by overinflate. some will look longingly on the time when one candidate dominated the political scene. lyndon johnson grittily be very goldwater and richard nixon, overwhelming george mcgovern. each of those elections, one of the candidates failed to capture the spirit of the american voting public and the winner had the advantage of a weak opponent. franklin roosevelt won his second term landslide because of huge popularity. and many of our presidential elections, the candidates are in a fitted title to present themselves as the one capable of serving the country with the winner is walking off with the modern maturity. the customary wisdom that the campaign between the incumbent president and his opponent will be either a referendum on the first term of the president or a judgment of which candidate would be the better theater. is there really a difference between these two considerations? is it not boil down to judging the leadership skill of the incumbent based on effectiveness during his first term versus the unknown leadership skills of the challenge
elected person i suppose, that would make it a crime for rape victims to get abortions. the text of her bill reads, tampering with evidence shall include procuring or facilitating an abortion or compelling or coercing another to obtain abortion of a fetus that's the result of criminal sexual penetration or incest with the intent to destroy evidence of the crime. why do they get into this stuff? what in their mind magnetized them to even be talking about rape after what they've been through with mourdock and what's that guy's name? >> akin. >> todd akin. >> because they believe it. >> but they don't think about it, do they? >> i guess they do. this is the issue. it's not about stopping stupid remarks, as haley barbour or bobby jindal say or peggy noonan. they believe in self-deportation a lot of them. that wasn't a stupid remark. it was politically, but that's what mitt romney campaigned on. they believe in preventing gay marriage. they believe in -- >> that said, almost half the people agree with some of this stuff, so don't marginalize it all. >> say on the tax policy, they fought on r

're not doing this again. i've already had this conversation with lou about nine or ten days after the election. he's moaning and groaning, and i said, lou, will you stop it, we're americans, we'll figure this out. and i just spent 15 minutes giving lou holtz a pep talk. >> well, good news for republicans, lou holtz hasn't been the best predictor when it comes to college football, so maybe he's off on this prediction as well. anyway, boehner's message to stick together before a group that is known for being more centrist was no accident. and boehner joked about his own vulnerability in his conference, making this joke after being introduced by former congressman mike hocksly. >> when he gave me this introduction, he was talking about how no one questioned my integrity, no one questioned my patriotism, no one questioned my conservatism. huh. where the hell have you been?! >> boehner successfully corralled those members yesterday, though. the house passed a bill to suspend the debt ceiling for four months until may 19th, avoiding a showdown over the federal borrowing limit. backing off a demand f

. the challenge to us is to remember what we learned when we first entered this movement, that you never elect someone to make change happen for you. you elect somebody to make it a little easier for your movement to keep on making change after. and so, brothers and sisters, i implore you tonight, have a good time, party caressed well, then get right back on the battlefield tuesday morning because we took our democracy back and we ain't giving it up to nobody. thank you and god bless. fire it up. fire it up. fire it up! god bless you all. >> that was president of the naacp, benjamin jealous, speaking at the peace ball, voices of hope and resistance come here in washington, d.c. on sunday night. we will be back with more from the peace ball couldn't angela davis, sonia sanchez and others in a moment. ♪ [music break] >> sweet honey in the rock performing at the peace ball last night. this is "democracy now!,", the war and peace report. i'm amy goodman. we are broadcasting from washington, d.c., bringing you special coverage of today's inauguration as hundreds of thousands gath
, there was an election last year. it did not go our way. like you, i understand full well that elections have consequences. the vice president off house is a few houses away from here. i was looking forward to taking on the big challenges. there are two ways to define defeat -- you can deny it or you can choose to learn from it. i choose to learn from it. the way that i see it, our defeat is all the more reason to lay out our vision and lay out specifics with a broader appeal. it will be difficult without a arner in the white house. -- without a partner in the white house. i believe that we can do this. we have to deal with the fact that president obama has a second term. that is the topic of my talk today. a second term will present a lot of new challenges for our side. it will also present a lot of opportunities. we will need something that we occasionally overlook. i would like to explain what that is and why we need it. first, a context. worst term,dent's we argued against big government in theory -- in his first term, we argued against big government in theory. obamacare is no longer a 2
. and it was a pure ideological election. because there were no personalities involved. you weren't voting for president. you want boating up and down on a figure. you were voting on issues and the dominant issue was obama and as a scare, the stimulus committee increase in spending, the expansion of the government. or to put it in a more abstract and grand was the difference between federal and state which was tilting more toward state. when the question is put that way, the country shows itself to be center-right country. had republicans been able to duplicate those conditions, that framework in 2012, they would have won. but it is not the same election. 2010 is almost purely ideological election. perhaps the most ideological since 1980. then you get to 2010, when you have a personality involved and you have a figure represents one side. romney is a good man. i like him. i think he is an honorable man, and i think he would have made an excellent president. but he was a bad candidate particularly in an election that could have been one had been an election about ideas and philosophy. i thi
that the 2012 election is a definitive test of your proposition. the reason is obama did not have a opponent who presented a clear and strong argument for reagan knight perspective of stronger government, less taxes, less dependency. you know, romney was a good man but he basically ran on the economy, lousy economy, we need a new ceo in washington. it didn't work. i think we will get a good tis of this in 2016. we are going to have the four years of obama's hyper liberalism, the kind of stuff he elucidated and enuns dated yesterday in the inaugural address. and i would say that if our ideology, conservative, small government ideology is correct, it will leave a mess behind. but we will also need as conservatives, republicans if you like, a standard bearer in 2016 who can make the case. and there is not a dearth of them. we have a very strong bench. we have got ryan. we have got rubio. we have got the governors, there is a whole young generation of conservatives who can make the case that will be the test. although i will say that if liberals keep winning elections, then your theory of a fundamen
election. that is not unusual. when you consider that half of them probably married voters and that romney won married voters by 54%, wouldn't it be advisable for us, in addition to fine tuning our message and in addition to focusing on having a better competition for candidates, wouldn't it be better for us to focus on bringing out our voters? they are out there. married women, married men, tend to vote republican. >> i want to answer that. in addition to registering people, people who follow me on twitter know i watch way too much msnbc. sometimes i get the impression that people are not looking at what the other side is doing. it wasn't just voter registration. there was also convincing people that republicans were suppressing the black and other minority vote. i think there was a total lack of realization on the right that this is going on. the left truly believes and convinces -- it uses the strategy that republicans are trying to suppress the vote. when we don't -- we don't even pay attention to what the other side is doing. how the heck are we going -- >> at the national level, i di
before women got the right to vote. and now we just had a historic election where there are more women in congress than we have ever had before. it's really an incredible movement, and i work at emily's list, and emily's list has been working on it for 28 years to get more women on the pipeline. and we are picking it up. >> sam, it seems to me that the president was almost like an ich bin ein berliner speech. he's a man of color himself. but to embrace all of this together, i have never heard any of it -- none of this they. there was no they. it was all we, a lot of we. >> keep in mind, i thought the theme was that change can spark from the individual. in all these cases you have change being a grassroots entity, but it has to have a component of the state and government to help foster it, and the line that really stuck out to me was these truths can be self-evident, but they're not self-executing. what he made was a case for why there is an important role for the government to play to basically protect our rights but also to advance us as a society whether it's on climate change, immi

: the governor has really had the popularity ratings that have stalled ever since he has been elected into office. one of the latest things he has been doing is after his first term in which he spent some time really cutting the budget and balancing the budget, and that included reducing the education funding by $1.3 billion, he has turned a run and is now in the process of trying to win back some of his support, especially within the education community. he has recently come up with a proposal to get every full-time teacher in the state a $2,500 raise. that is one of the things he has been doing that is really going across the party line a little bit to try to reach out to teachers. host: how does florida have the money to pay for that? is there any push back? caller: the cost is estimated at $480 million. the governor has yet to give us his budget proposal. he will be releasing that this week. we will see where he plans to pay for it. there has been some push back from the legislature. republican lawmakers say that they do not oppose giving teachers a raise, but they would prefer to have focuse
